Abstract: The advancement of the Philippine Education System specifically the implementation of the new Philippine Qualification Framework which aims to address the challenges of the 4th Industrial Revolution and 21st -century education, necessitates that materials of instruction should be at par with 21st -century technologies. Thus, there is a need for teachers to be innovative and resourceful enough, and to develop instructional/training materials that will yield good effects on students. In the case of TESDA and the Senior High School TVL Track, workstations are in demand since it used to develop more competencies and give hands-on experiences to students. The primary objective of this study was to develop a Mobile Workstation for Electronic Products Assembly and Servicing (EPAS) NC II. It has specific objectives such as to make the design for the workstation; to identify the materials and procedures; and to evaluate its acceptability in terms of functionality, cost-effectiveness, safety, and workmanship. The Research and Development Process and Descriptive Method were used for the attainment of these objectives. Mean was used to compute the results of the evaluation of electronics Instructors and Assessor; private electronics practitioner; and students enrolled in Electronics Product Assembly Servicing NC II for the school year 2016-2017. The result of the evaluation of its acceptability showed that the workstation is highly acceptable with the over-all weighted mean of 4.79. It is recommended that this workstation should be used in the classroom and community-based training as instructional material for developing competencies in EPAS NC II. This can also be reproduced by TVET institutions and DepEd schools that offer EPAS NC II.
